uncodebar Scotland 2023
Saturday 18th November | 10:30 - 17:00 GMT
We are so excited to be bringing uncodebar to Glasgow. Uncodebar is our one-day unconference that encourages the codebar community to come together, share knowledge, and strengthen the community that supports our workshops.GET YOUR TICKET HERE
At an unconference:
- no topics predetermined
- no keynote speakers
- no panels or working groups
+ no agenda until the day
+ freedom & discussion
An unconference is a "loosely structured open space event emphasising the informal exchange of information and ideas between participants."
The heart of our event lies in the vibrant contributions and enthusiasm of attendees.
You propose talks, workshops, and panels and decide what topics will be discussed. Then people convene in separate breakout sessions. In other words, an unconference has no agenda until the morning when participants create it.

Types of sessions
This is tricky, because it’s difficult to make a formal presentation interactive. But if you have a big, well-developed idea you can pull it off.
⏲ A short presentation to get things started:
5-15 minutes of prepared material/comments by the session leader followed by an interactive discussion.
💬 Group discussion:
Someone identifies a topic they are interested in, others come to join the conversation and an interesting discussion happens.
❔ My Big (or Little) Question:
You have a question you want to know the answer to, and you think others in the group could help you answer it. This format could also just be the seed of a conversation.
📺 Show and tell:
You have a cool project, a demo, or just something to show and let people play with that is the springboard for all the conversation in the session. Alternatively, you can invite others to bring their own items to show and tell (perhaps with a theme), and everyone takes a turn sharing.
📖 Learn how to do X:
If you’re inclined to teach, this can be simple and effective. Bring the equipment that you need, and have a plan that will let you teach five, ten, or 15 people how to do something all at the same time.
